This is the true story of the greatest musicians you've never heard of! 

"They played on more #1 records than the Beatles, the Beach Boys, the Rolling Stones and Elvis Presley combined... This is their story."

Richard Allen, Jack Ashford, Bob Babbitt, Benny Benjamin, Bootsy Collins
Artisan Entertainment; Directed by Paul Justman
Rated PG; 116 minutes; 2003

The founder of Motown Records found a group of musicians who would come to call themselves the Funk Brothers and who would be the house band on all of its major hits. This band was the heartbeat of every song and this documentary, cut with archive footage, interviews and live performances finally gives them the credit that is long overdue.

Gail I did not know that and I lived through that time period.  Got to put that in my little book of facts.
